ernie had his annual vet visit/vaccination trip yesterday. first of all, this dog freakin’ loves going to the vet. even after his minisurgery last year, he still loves it.
granted, he isn’t crazy about having his temp taken rectally, but even then, he still loves the vet, the techs, and running around the exam room. no matter where we’ve lived or who the vet is. Loves. It.
but he does want to eat other dogs, cats, and children, so that’s still a problem, requiring us to get the first or last appointment of the day. but he’s healthy an he’s lost 8 lbs from last year (he was slightly chubby) and now he’s a prefect weight, and his vet said his weight loss was “phenomenal”.
it’s easier to just not give him treats when he wants them than it is for me to not give myself treats when i want them, because it’s not me wanting them when he wants them
